How to make your prom makeup last!

You've planned your look head to toe--the most glamorous dress, the cutest hairstyle and of course the perfect makeup. But have you thought about how your cosmetics will hold up to all those hours of dancing? Here are some products that will help set your look and keep you looking flawless the whole night:

  • You wake up ready for your big night tonight, but your face is peeling or your foundation won't blend. These products will help cover oily or dry skin and to keep your foundation from melting: Revlon PhotoReady Primer $9 / BENEFIT Porefessional Primer $31

  • You’ve finally decided on the perfect Smokey Eye look you want for prom and you go to apply your eyeshadow, but the pigment and blending isn’t looking right. Use one of these products to help eye shadows and sparkling products blend easier: NYX Eye Shadow Primer $7 / Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer $20

  • Whether your eyebrows are high arched, bushy or thin, you want them to look perfect for prom. Before filling them in, use a primer to make sure your stubborn hairs stay put and to keep your full brows from smearing: NYX Eyebrow Primer $7 / BENEFIT BROWVO! $28

  • Your makeup is finally flawless and you’re ready for the big night. But don’t rush out the door yet, you don’t want to put all that hard work to waste. 2-3 pumps of this magical spray and after pictures, dinner and breaking a sweat on the dance floor, your face will still have a glamorous finish: NYX Setting Spray $6 / Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray $31

These products will keep your makeup looking gorgeous on the dance floor. However, if cosmetics just aren't your thing or you’d rather not leave it to chance, contact my makeup artist extraordinaire Kelsie Wessel (contact her at or 518-965-6154) and she’ll set you up with a gorgeous look for prom!
